As we meander through the countryside to Avebury, we pass famous white horses carved into the chalk hillsides and picturesque, tucked away villages. We explore the mysterious phenomena of crop circles and take a closer look at any which may be in the area. Spend quality time exploring the Avebury World Heritage Landscape.

Avebury, the largest stone circle in Britain and the product of over 500 years of effort by Neolithic man. Enjoy a walking tour of this ancient site and try your hand at the ancient art of dowsing. Prepare to be amazed ! There's also time to explore the charming village of Avebury with its thatched cottages, antiques and village church - and maybe enjoy a cream tea or pint in beer in the Red Lion.
We also visit Silbury Hill, the largest man-made hill in prehistoric Europe. We enter the 5600 year old burial chamber of West Kennet Long Barrow, entering a sacred space originally reserved only for ritual specialists and the dead.
We can also arrange extra VIP Stonehenge access dates for private groups, ideal for couples, families and small groups
Nick made our guided tour of Stonehenge the highlight of our trip to England. He was not only knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited, but just as excited to be there as we were! He helped us take some amazing photos of our family during our inner-access and his shots were the best ones of ourtrip (thanks, Nick!). We quickly felt as if we had known him for years, yet he made sure to give us time to take in Stonehenge, Avebury Circle, and LacockVillage as a family. Our three children were smitten by Nick's excitement and his explanations of the mystical qualities of the region. George was excellent with communicating details, payments, etc. We truly felt like we were given something special and we'd definitely use this company for another tour in the future.
